On seeing this on the Beeb website

"..Mr Cameron had delivered the news to Mrs Gillan that she was being sacked while he drank a glass of wine."

I was spurred to think that it might be useful to chose candidates for elections who have other talents than BS and pork barrel projects, something useful for life after jai....politics.

Training is available for servicemen coming onto civvy street, so perhaps we might also consider otherwise talentless politicians as well.

We already have Mr Clinton, with his saxophone and now Dave, with his amazing ventriloquism act...

       It all depends if he told Mrs Gillan "You're fired", whilst drinking a glass of wine, or told Mrs Gillan "You're fired whilst drinking a glass of wine".

       But seriously (up to a point) if only Richard Nixon had gone to locksmith school on his "politicians learn something useful" grant money, his whole career might have ended different..

       I hear they could make excellent actors. All of that pretense could make for great drama. Perhaps a Survivor episode where they all get cast off in gory ways.
